discover her homosexuality when her parents are killed. She is sent to live with her
evangelical aunt and uncle, who send her to a Christian gay conversion center when they
found out about her sexuality.” The film tightens its view on the events that sculpt the life of Cameron, singling the scenario down to focus on the Christian gay conversion center and what ideas they try to instill in her head. She is a lost soul, that is true, without anyone to guide or help her understand the sexual awakening feelings that are ratcheting around inside. But as the film most succinctly illustrates with a delicate but strongly formulated manner, the negative formations that are attempted to give her life a framework to live by are disturbing and most definitely harmful to her psyche.
